Who Me?

Wow.  One of blogging friends who also happens to be a former student nominated me for the Liebster Award.
Considering I just started blogging (kind of), I think this is really cool!   

This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers...the award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another. What to do: 1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves. 2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to. 3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post. 4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award. 5. No tag backs.
Random Facts:
1. I love to travel!  When I am in any new place, I want to meet the locals, eat what the locals eat, and do what the locals do. It makes the experience richer to me.
2. I remember weird things about places, spaces, and travel.  Like I can remember the name of restaurant I ate in once, and the appetizer I ate while I was there.  
3.  I love the quietness of a good long drive with the radio blaring and no one else in the car so I can sing (I can't sing, that's why no one else can be in the car!).
4.I am addicted to Pinterest and reading blogs.  I love to read period.
5. I'm an idea collector and that is why I love Pinterest..the ultimate form of collecting web-based that link back to instructions and original posts. 
6. I LOVE to paint.
7. I like to make jewelry, among many other things.
8. I've had two back surgeries.
9. One of my very favorite places is Custer, South Dakota.
10. I am going to be a Grandma!!
11. I dated my hubby for 5 years before we got married.
Questions from Chores and Chandeliers:
1. What is one thing you can’t live without.  Nebraska water and maybe my computer.
2. How long have you been blogging?  A couple of years, but really only a couple of months.
3. Which blogs do you visit most?  Wow..that would be too difficult to answer with my Google Reader, but probably House of Turquoise, For the Love of Wood, and Better After are ranked right up there.
4. Do you have pets?  A cairn terrier named Reggie.
5. What is your biggest pet peeve?  People who don't tell me the truth.
6. What the last thing you bought for YOURSELF?  A scarf...I love scarves.
7. How did you find my blog (chores and chandeliers)?  Suzi was my student when she was in Junior High.  I love following what everyone is doing out there.
